Rumor: Witcher 3 Blood and Wine DLC Arriving on June 7
It’s been a long wait for fans on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for their second paid batch of post-launch content, the Blood and Wine DLC, but it seems like the wait could be coming to an end if the latest rumor is to be believed. Polish website GRY-online recently listed the upcoming batch as a June 7 release, 13 months after the release of the main game.
The latest rumor indicated an April 26 release, but with only 2 weeks between now and then this seems highly unlikely. The date of June 7 would however coincide with CD Projekt Red’s original promise of a release within the first half of 2016.
Witcher 3 related events will be on show at PAX East next week but Community Manager Marcin Momot has admitted that revealing a release date for Blood and Wine will not be their main focus. The content is expected to provide around 20 hours of gameplay, and combined with the first paid DLC Hearts of Stone will make up as much content as the whole of Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings.
Not many details have been released about Geralt’s trip to Toussaint, but CD Projekt Red have confirmed that the DLC will “take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.”
The developers are yet to officially confirm any news on this rumor on the Blood and Wine DLC, but PAX East next week could provide some interesting information.
